We Measure & Connect

The Greater Louisville Project benchmarks Louisville’s performance against its peer cities. This keeps our community focused on a shared agenda for long-term progress.

Peer cities share common indicators, embody similar socio-economic characteristics, and provide data points that make comparison of the factors influencing the Deep Drivers of Change.

This data enables our community leaders to:

  • set actionable goals that drive improvement,
  • position our city for long-term progress,
  • and help us all build a greater Louisville.

Our Data Legacy

The GLP publishes data, research, and information related to our Deep Drivers through its Competitive City Reports. These reports help connect the dots between education, jobs, health, and quality of place.
